Whale Dive 2

Tourist submarine on the nose of a sperm whale

For a more natural submarining experience... A tourist is fitted in to single-person armor-glass capsule at the surface. This capsule is engineered to withstand crushing depths while giving an unobstructed view out. The capsule resembles a human-sized torpedo. A sperm whale swims to the loading point, receiving as payment a vat of fresh krill. The tourist in capsule is tethered to the nose of the sperm whale via a form- fitting suction mechanism. Floodlights attached to the capsule ensure that the tourist can see the ocean fade into blackness and helps the sperm whale navigate the depths. The whale begins its dive...doing what whales do. Two hours later, the whale returns to the loading point and receives another vat of krill, the amount dependent on the depth and duration of the dive.

       That's an excellent metaphor.

       I'm sure the whale will learn to make the ride exciting for larger tip vats. It's a trillion to one lottery that a trip will get stuck between the sperm whale and a giant squid. Suction mechanisms may even evoke bad memories.   

       Although, our tech may not be up to it yet for a whale carriage subtle enough.
